Former finance minster and senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Friday appeared before Enforcement Directorate in connection with a money laundering probe linked with INX media.
Though he has previously faced ED several times, but Friday’s appearance followed his son’s appearance a day earlier.
Thursday Karti Chidambaram, son of P Chidambaram had appeared before ED to comply with court’s direction and faced ED officials for six hours.

ED attached Karti Chidambaram’s assets worth an estimated Rs 54 crore, located in India and abroad in the case.
